Behind the Scenes with Seychelles

We took some time out with Miranda Selwyn, Seychelles shoe designer, to hit up her favorite hidden Los Angeles shopping gem, Shareen Vintage. In the outskirts of downtown LA, you'll stumble upon a warehouse full of vintage clothing and accessories. Shop owner Shareen and her team of ladies are experts on vintage fashion and provide an expertly curated selection. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dig in, though, because this place is filled to the brim with treasures. You'll be sure to find what you're looking for, and most likely leave with some things you never even knew you wanted, but now can't imagine living without! Here are Miranda's top picks.

Music Friday - Jessie Baylin

We had the privilege of seeing Jessie Baylin perform live at The Hotel Cafe way back in the day when the line up was a bunch of unknowns and the crowd was slim. Performing in between Joshua Radin, Brett Dennen, Sara Bareilles and Joe Purdy; Jessie stuck out as one to watch and so we've followed her musical journey ever since.

Her new album, LITTLE SPARK, hit store shelves on Tuesday and above is a little sampler of all the amazingness that went into the making of it. She's quintessentially cool. Her sound is a throw back (as she mentions above) to the music greats of past decades. Seek out her story, get to know her music and you too will be on board.

A Los Angeles Winter

This has been my first winter back in California after a couple years, and it has been quite an easy transition compared to the snowy New England weather. It's a refreshing change not to be wearing the same snow boots every day this winter, and my go-to shoe this season has been the Bismuth Burlap heels in Black. I'm pretty sure these shoes will go with anything in my closet. I snapped this photo when I met up with a friend for a late night Pinkberry date. Eating frozen yogurt in January? Yes, it's possible in California!

Also did you notice my clutch? It was a gift from the girls over at Seychelles. It's made from the same fabric as the limited edition Helsinki boots!

first look: PINA by Wim Wenders

We've been waiting with baited breath for Wim Wender's film Pina to open in Los Angeles and the time finally arrived. A magnificent tribute to German neo-expressionist choreographer Pina Bausch, the film showcases interviews and performances by the original members of Pina's dance company. Pina became famous for creating a revolutionary form of dance known as Tanztheater, characterized by aggression, sensuality, longing and melancholy. In a tragic turn, Pina died unexpectedly two days before production on the film was set to begin, and this sense of sadness and loss comes through in the way the dancers speak of their beloved teacher. We can't even express how original and breathtaking this film is. Check out the trailer and find out when the film is playing in your city.

In the words of Pina Bausch, "Dance, dance...otherwise we are lost."

Keeping it Simple.

NAVY story

We are not strangers to the beauty combo of mustard and navy. In fact, as we go back through many of our looks and drafts, we seem to gravitate toward and continually promote it. Alas... here we go again. 

This outfit, paired with our "must have" ALL DRESSED UP heels in mustard, is simple, classic and a perfect add or subtract starting point. All in all, (separately or all together), these pieces are perfect closet additions. What do you think?

looks we love: denim jackets

Here in California, we don't often have to worry about heavy winter coats, but we always turn to a lightweight denim jacket as an essential fall and winter layering option. As you can see, all the girls in our office are fans of this look and there are so many ways to wear it: pair it with a vintage skirt, bright colored leggings, or a basic black and white ensemble. The possibilities are endless and you just can't go wrong. What's your favorite way to wear a denim jacket?

Day or Evening. Both?

Cognac & Black

Our amazing QUOTATION MARK heels have inspired this comfy yet sophisticated look, which would be perfect for a lunch date or an evening at the theater.

Combining the richness of the cognac color, with bits of black and slate grey, brings out the amazing snakeskin pattern of the heels. A little splash of metallic never hurt anyone right?

What do you think? Where would you go wearing this outfit??
